Extreme Weight Loss: 10 Things That Happen When You Drop the Weight

Having lost 150lbs., there have been many non-scale victories that could easily be taken for granted. Including these 10 things that happen when you drop the weight. If you follow me on social media, you've seen my posts about reaching the 150lbs-lost goal. That's a whole person! It's also 46% of my starting weight and 20lbs. from my final goal weight.

Everyone has their own goals when they lose weight, these were some of mine. Some may even seem silly. I was thrilled each time I checked one off my list. Each has made all the weight-loss tips I've used even more worth doing. My mind and what I see in the mirror doesn't always match all the goals I've reached, though. Believing and accepting I've actually lost all the weight is another battle.

Staying Organized with Peek Bags

If you're house is like ours, there is stuff everywhere that needs to be organized. Yet, we still need to see what's in the container. M2 has pencils, pens and notebooks, I've got my own notebooks and pens to keep sorted.

With Peek Bags, I can pick the size bag I need since there is one that fits small items, medium and large (my pick for my notebooks). The bottom portion of every cloth bag is clear so that I can still see what it is in the bag, rather than rummaging through. For my notebooks, it comes in handy because I can turn to the page I need to reference the most, put it in with that page up, then still see the page inside the bag without having to take it out. That keeps it safer from the kids, too, who love to tear up any notebooks they get their hands on.
